Serenity! (On my mind)

 “ Smiling always with a never fading serenity of countenance,
    and flourishing in an immortal youth.”
                                        Isaac Barrow

 Is there anything more peaceful, and serene, than an old barn with animals, just wandering about?
 As I ponder, getting ready to tackle the three- foot snowdrift in my lane way, I will keep this on my mind.



  1. That's a wonderful picture of your barn. It must be old -- from the architecture. I just love old barns. So much more character than the Morton buildings you see everywhere. :)

  2. What a beautiful barn. It's seen many a snowfall I imagine. With all those windows it would be full of light inside. The animals are staying close to the door.

  3. The barn is stunning. It's very different than what we find in Montana. There is something about a white barn that really catches the eye. Once again, your photos are beautiful!.....Denise

  4. I love the architecture of this barn, the simple sloping lines...that it is white, as most barns around here are red...
    As Always..Thank You for sharing!!

  5. Agreed upon. Animals are so much calmer then we humans.
    Still digging out huh? Ours was done this morning, needed to for the milk truck to get to the barn. Always something! Animals are back outside today. less mess inside!

  6. Thank you for your visit to my blog. Your photos are beautiful. And man do you ever have some snow up there in the North!
    Love the cow pictures. My Daddy raised herefords when I was small. He used to walk out to the barn in the snow to help deliver the calves, then come back to the house and tell us what sex they were. Then my brother and I would fight over who got to name each new calf. Great memories. Thanks for making me remember them. I am now a follower of your blog so that I can come back and look back to the beginning.

  7. Hello Buttons
    My first thought was 'sooner you than me' but then I thought - that would be one way to lose any excess baggage lol
    Really like the light and dark contrast in the photo
    Take care

  8. Hello Buttons! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Your white barn is HUGE! And white! I am used to red in the US, or ours is green, forest green! Enjoy the weekend!

  9. Hi Buttons. Thanks for visiting my blog. Would love to see your Button collection. :-)
    What a lovely Barn & I just love the trees in front. Beautiful!

  10. Hi Buttons! It's a beautiful building, that's for sure. You know, one of the things I learned by reading blogs is that some domestic animals live in the snow in winter. Obviously your animals have that lovely barn, but others live in the fields all year. I was surprised by that. LOL What a sheltered life I live.

  11. That's a huge barn! 3 feet of snow? My husband just shuddered. I told him he has grown soft about the weather since we moved to California ha!

  12. Look at all that snow!!!! It's hot and muggy here. The flood waters are still around and now it's raining. We can't win. Love the photo - thank you for sharing it.

  13. Beautiful pictures! We normally get a winter like yours, but here in Michigan, we were blessed with a (relatively) mild winter. I'm not complaining!
